The film’s story will be set on the East Coast and focus on “a teen from China (Wang) who finds strength and direction via martial arts and a tough but wise mentor (or two).”

The movie will be directed by Jonathan Entwistle (The End of the F***ing World) from a script written by Rob Lieber, with Karen Rosenfelt producing.

Karate Kid also stars Joshua Jackson in an undisclosed role and is set for release by Sony Pictures on December 13, 2024.
